that the game change authors obtained a memo from governor chris christie's vetting process to be vice president. quote, according to a memo on christie from the vetting team, it had unanswered questions from early in his political career on a securities and exchange commission settlement involving mr. christie's brother. on names and documentation of his household help, and on his medical sister. the dossier was littered with potential land mines. we haven't seen the book yet, but this raises a question. meanwhile mitt romney had another issue with the governor. that would be chris christie's weight. romney marvelled at christie's girth, his difficulties in making his way down the narrow aisle of the campaign bus. watching a video of christie without his suit jacket on romney cackled to his aides, guys, look at that. that sounds pretty high school. chris christie, if i were him and i liked the guy, i would be ticked of something putting off questions about the vetting not getting answers. >> it was clear during the campaign and after that the convention that the relationship between christie's
the country in new jersey where voters head to the polls, governor chris christie will win reelection. the latest quinnipiac poll has him up over two to one over barba barbara buono. christie and his supporters hope to show the republican party how to win an election. we caught up with governor cristy on the campaign trail over the weekend and asked him what will likely be his victory speech on tuesday. >> sounds like you're planning for a message beyond new jersey. is that a fair assessment? >> i'm not planning for it. i think it's inevitable. people look at elections and they try to discern about what they mean at that moment and what they mean for the future. i think that what people will see is so unusual for what our party has created in the last couple of years that invariably people will draw from us. >> is the margin necessary to lay a future for your career? >> i don't think so. barack obama won the state by 17 points a year ago. the fact that you're talking to a republican about margin rather than can you win or. >> really good thing to have. >> at this stage you look at chr
? have you heard the one about vice president clinton or chr christie. this is "state of the union". >>> good morning from washington. i'm candy crowley. attorneys charged the man that opened fire at lax with two felonies. the gunman, 23-year-old paul ciancia killed hernandez. two additional agents were wounded. joining me now from austin texas is the chairman of the house homeland committee michael mccaul. congressman, thank you for joining us. in the aftermath of this, the question i hear most often is -- >> thank you. >> -- why did he do this? do you know about that? i know you've been able to see some notes that he wrote. what do you think the motivation was here? >> i think mental illness, once again, kind of like the navy yard shooter that we saw. the suicide note that i read talks a lot about killing tsa agents, and if he said if i just kill one my mission is accomplished and unfortunately, he did do that the other day and the other thing he wanted to talk about is how easy it is to bring a gun into an airport and do something just like he did and my simple thoughs go out to
president candidate chris christie. how the oibz campaign considered the first and why the romney campaign considered and rejected the second. two of the inside details coming out from the tell all authors of "game change." a sequel "double down" is not out until next week. we're getting early details that will have a lot of people talking. here to taw tonight, andrew sullivan of the dish. amy holmes anchor of the hot list and the blaze.com. senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin, former republican congressman rick lazio. i want to start with john martin of the "new york times" who broke the details. really fascinating details. talk about how the obama white house considered hillary clinton what they did about it. >> sure. this is the end of 2011. president obama's numbers were really bad at that point there. were a handful of his top aides trying to figure out a way forward. how can we be competitive in next year's re-election, win next year's re-election given the political predicament we're in. one of the options they looked at was replacing joe biden with hillary clinton on a ticket in 20
-business, whatever republicans who can put that to rest. whether it's chris christie or someone else. just the other day you saw rick santorum who probably wanted to be the wacko bird nominee a couple weeks ago now saying he thinks ted cruz is too far to the right and didn't help with the government shutdown. so when you see rick santorum doing that, it shows a lot of frustration that cruz has jumped aid head to be the wackiest of them. >> and here we are bird watching. ted cruz still blamed senate republicans for buckling too soon. he said they should have gone off the cliff. let's watch. >> we didn't accomplish our ultimate policy goal in this battle. and we didn't because, unfortunately, a significant number of senate republicans chose not to unite and stand side by side with house republicans. had we stood together, i'm convinced the outcome of this fight would be very, very different. >> howard, what do you make of this guy's hand gestures? there's something evangelical about it. something for sunday morning on television. but there's something demonstrative about it. it's like he's deciding wh
. puffer fish for chris christie. as you point out the romney campaign had serious concerns with chris christie's background. one of the reasons they didn't pick him. were you surprised christie has gotten such a big part of the buzz surrounding this book particularly as he heads to the polls tomorrow or folks head to the polls to potentially vote for him? >> look, he's a big exciting figure in american politics. there aren't many people like him. he's on his way tomorrow to be re-elected by a resounding margin. the fact there's focus isn't a surprise to either of us. what we found reporting the story, mitt romney's consideration of governor christie. what we found surprising was first of all he considered him and then rejected him because he thought there were too many aspects of his past which had been looked out a little in new jersey, in context of the politics there. governor romney said, look, in the national race everything is different. it will get a lot of scrutiny. he didn't want the distraction sarah palin caused when she was selected by john mccain. he rejected governor chr
orchestrated by an even less popular and highly divided republican party. the political fates of chris christie in new jersey and ken cuccinelli in virginia, the two republicans in the running have a lot to tell us about just what kind of republican can get elected these days. now, on the one hand, you have christie, who, if recent polls showing him clobbering his democratic opponent, barbara what's her name by a 19-point margin are any indication, it's the kind who wins elections. correction, the kind of republican who can win elections in a blue state that gave president obama 58% of the vote in 2012. now, on paper, chris christie is as conservative as they come. opposition to reproductive rights? check. he defunded planned parenthood and refused to fund new jersey state family planning centers. standing strong against marriage equality? check. he recently backed down from his efforts to block same-sex marriage from moving the forward in new jersey, but only after a long, long fight to keep it from happening. advancing economic austerity policies, check. opposing organized labor, check. suppr
eyebrows about why new jersey governor chris christie is campaigning so aggressively just days before a voet he's got locked up. christie's still on the move. nbc's kelly o'donnell is on the move as well, having interviewed christie on the road. she joins us in hamilton, new jersey. a good sunday to you. what is behind this tour? >> reporter: well, we've been traveling with the governor, talking to him along the way. he says the polls could do him a disservice because voters actually have to get there on election day and cast ballots. so he says he is trying to grind it out, push from town to town to connect with voters, to make sure they actually turn out. there's also the issue of how big of a margin might he have if he is, in fact, going to win, how big a win. and i talked to him about that last night. >> i'm not planning for it. i just think it's inevitable. you know, i think people look at elections and try to discern things from them about what they mean at that moment and what they mean for the future. i think that what people are going to see is so unusual for what our party h
you make of the chris christie stuff in the book? basically he looks like mitt romney considered him and then didn't and considered him again and eventually trying to make out that somehow they were concerned about his background and so on, something chris christie denies. would it made any difference to mitt romney if his running mate was chris christi? >> i don't think so. the reason he lost is there was this surprise enormous vote from elderly black women. they want to keep obama in the white house, first african american president. so they won't change their vote. they are still coming out. the other was a deficit of working class white males in the upper midwest, the places hit but the auto bailout. i don't think it makes a difference christie is on the bailout. i think they are both great reporters -- >> the game change was not really contested. they obviously got good sources. >> which reminds me of another reason i don't think they were considering hillary clinton. among the things bill clinton said about obama when hilary was running against them was teddy kennedy, about bar
was dicey and fishconsin. romney was bothered, according to the book about, i christie showing up late to things and also, to just his physical fitness. and they quote in the book, romn romney. watching a video of him without his suit jacket on. romney kakled to his aides, look at that. >> as we said, i think there is a lot in this book. here's the thing with the vp selection. this is something there is always talk about how the process goes through. one of the best kept secrets in presidential politics of who is being attacked by the other side. it is no secret mitt romney is very organized, very fit, very on time. but at the end of the day when it comes to chris christie, he is getting ready to be reelected by a land slide next tuesday. so there is something to be that for being fat and tardy. >> what about what chris christie said about this in the book? i love it. >> anybody who wants to sell a book puts my name in it. that's fine. i have a great relationship with the romneys and the campaign. it's all just, you know, trying to make sure they sell as many books as possible. >> 200
advisers were considering replacing him. another revelation mitt romney considered chris christie as his vice president candidate before deciding on paul iran. >>> a big i told you so with more americans dropped by their insurance carriers because of obama care. republicans have been quick to point out they predicted this exact scenario back in 2010 even before that when the president was making a lot of promises that so far have not panned out. chief congressional correspondent dana bash has more. >> the gentleman from ohio, mr. boehner. >> reporter: march 2010 then minority leader john boehner came to the floor. he issued this warning. >> look at this bill! ask yourself do you really believe that if you like the health plan that you have that you can keep it? no, you can't. >> reporter: it's just one example of a republican effort before the health care bill became law of the land to push back on this presidential sales pitch. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. no one will take it away no matter what. >> reporter: that was the su
win the nomination. >> you tell people what you believe in. >> governor christie model. >> immigration reform, he needed to say the same thing on english language radio station, spanish radio station. i've said it before. i'll say it again, nobody ever stops you when you are going 90 miles an hour, if he was going 90 miles an hour in support of immigration reform and very aggressive about it, actually attacking poem that opposed him. even in his own party, you know, quoting the "wall street journal," quoting other small government conservatives, he would have done well, but -- >> it would have been hard now, he would have benefitted tremendously. >> he would have benefitted down the road and been a rock rib conservative. >> can he still recover here? >> it will be hard to recover before 2016, especially since rand paul is doing it right. >> you want to see strength. look at governor christie, he's going to win that race by 30 points. people are going to look, it's a democratic state. here's a guy who is pretty darn conservative who can wrap up a vick try like that. being strong over th
some very good things. chris christie has certainly stepped up to the plate. the houses and community faith-based organizations that have been excluded in very large measure from getting any kind of fema help, they can get it from the sba or others, it's far less. saint rose in belmar, the building itself is a community action oriented building where they help the poor and homeless, all kinds of great work. they have been told you're not going to get it. the upper floors not affected by sandy are used by other things. that's a discriminatory policy. >> this past the hour, blocked in the senate. >> nonprofit disaster assistance passed 354-72, absolutely bipartisan, liberal, mod ral, conservative, everybody joining in and saying it's discriminatory. >> does not violate church and state. >> sba would be equally violative of separation of church and state. you know, when you have a hurricane or natural disaster or home mid one like oklahoma city. in oklahoma city churches were repaired. damage is damage. when something happens there's a neutral basis applied and that's the key phrase. if
't be him. you have got cruise. you have got rubio. you have got christie. christie is a governor though. i don't think is he going to do it. you have got rand paul. it's very hard to get a cohesive message out to the american people when you don't have a messenger. >> but i think what they can do legislatively is they can say, look, there is so much chaos on some levels with what they're claiming their policies are going to do that, frankly, our role is going to be to block what they are trying to do. an extension of obama care. they have got to do that. >> didn't work -- >> -- no, that didn't work, bill, on other things that obama tried. he tried to pivot today back to carbon and the green economy. if he tries any more stuff on that, the republicans have got to say, look, they made you promises on obama care. they made you promises on green jobs. the stuff doesn't work. obama thought his popularity and his celebrity status, bill, was going to translate into policies working that even europe today is saying they don't work. big government plans aren't working. sorry about my voice by the w
about it. >> also in the book, romney was considering chris christie for vice president and should have. >> the campaign ruled him out due to unanswered questions about his background and health. there were several questions. they tried to get information about it. >> double down. >> also, this is the most remarkable part of the book. president obama, we know he has disdain. he's a social guy. he has disdain for -- >> he has disdain for hypocrisy and grubbiness. >> it's not just republicans he doesn't like to hang out with. he tried to set up a golf game with bill clinton. they don't finish 18 holes. >> can you imagine the talking. >> the disgust. i can only handle him in small places. i would love to golf with that guy. >> of course you would, joe. >> what do you think about the arkansas game? >> you are so great, joe. i don't know mr. president, how's my hair? you would love spending time with him. i can take him in doses. >> like five minute doses. >> oh, come on. mr. president, don't listen to her. >> mr. president, you do tend to overwhelm the conversation. >> no, no. i love that.
mitt romney seriously considered chris christie for vice president. the new jersey governor was apparently ruled out because of unanswered questions about his background and, quote, health concerns. >>> there's also new data on the number of people who signed up for obama care on day one. are these numbers a sign of trouble or what was expected? we'll talk about it and what it means for the white house as well as the uninsured and the fight against the rollout with the republican national committee chair, reince priebus, next. when you vote for flo, we'll have discounts. ice-cream discounts. multi-cookie discounts. pizza loyalty discounts! [ kids chanting "flo!" ] i also have some great ideas on car insurance. [ silence ] finding you discounts since back in the day. call or click today. i like her. for those nights when it's more than a bad dream, be ready. for the times you need to double-check the temperature on the thermometer, be ready. for high fever, nothing works faster or lasts longer. be ready with children's motrin. female narrator: the mattress price wars are endi
's covered by most health plans. >>> christi paul you just scored this exclusive intervow with the vice president, joe biden. you both share this deep concern over domestic violence. but, first, with everything on the hill yesterday, health care, he apologized over this roll ou. >> no matter what political side of the aisle you sit on, joe biden tells it like it is. we were just as surprised as anybody when i asked him about obama care and he just apolog e apologiz apologized. >> we were under the impression we were ready to go. we add the president to his credit almost seven weeks out saying, are we ready? to be told by the pros, yeah, this looks like it's all ready to go and neither he and i are technology geeks. and we assume that it was up and ready to run. but the good news is, although it's not and we apologized for that, we're confident that by the end of november it will be and still be plenty of time for people to register and get online. >> so, that was huge because he is the highest ranking official within the administration to say i'm sorry. so, that, obviously, making news
